Lawyers for Charter of Rights Violations in Hamilton

Since 1982, the Canadian Charter of Rights and Freedoms has protected the rights of the citizens in Canada against the misconduct of government. Many times, people panic when they’re arrested, and tend to forget or simply not aware of their rights. That is why, it is important to have an experience lawyer by your side to protect your rights and freedom. At Paquette Wilhelm Criminal Lawyers, we have the expertise in litigating breaches of our clients’ charter of rights in Hamilton and across Canada.
